Cabinet Finishing Techniques

Give your cabinet character

Finishing techniques are a great way to truly give your cabinets a unique look. Whether it’s creating those quaint distressed imperfections that give your cabinets a sense of identity, or enhancing the finishes and colors you’ve hand-chosen. Our finishing options optimize your style.


Add character and depth to select finishes with over-sanding on edges and profiles for a naturally worn-to-the-wood appearance that gives an old world charm. The glazing will enhance areas of wood exposed by over-sanding to take on the darker characteristics of the applied glaze for a finish that is warm and perfectly aged.


Emerge offers a light distressing technique known as Timeworn and a more aggressive distressing technique known as Extra Timeworn. These techniques create a finish/color with unique and appealing imperfections varying from light signs of wear to dents, worm holes, chisel marks, and more.
